Volker Sieber is heading the Chair of Chemistry of Biogenic Resources at the Technical University of Munich. His work is focused on using biocatalysis to establish sustainable production routes to fuels and chemicals from biomass and CO2. For this he is developing non-natural enzyme cascades. Examples of his work include the development of a four enzyme ATP free glycolysis and the production of amino acids from methanol. Enzyme engineering plays a central role in his work as he is using microfluidic based UHT methods, lab automation and AI. Volker Sieber is Founding Rector of the TUM Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability, where the Technical University of Munich concentrates its research and teaching in Bioeconomy, he has been one of the founding members of the Bioeconomy council for the Bavarian government and currently is spokesperson for the Bavarian Innovation Cluster for Industrial Biotechnology. Prof. Sieber is Honorary Professor of the University of Queensland.
